Abstract:

Surveying is a profession that finds itself increasingly at major crossroads today. This fact is perhaps best vindicated by the increasingly less number of students who are opting to study surveying as their first-degree choice at university level. The number of postgraduate students is also relatively low. In an effort to address this stark reality as well as re-engineer itself, the Department of Surveying, University of Nairobi is in the process of launching new academic programs at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. This paper traces developments in the curriculum review process at the Department of Surveying, University of Nairobi that began almost a decade ago. A review of the basic principles in curriculum development is presented. The objectives of the above new programs are outlined together with their respective regulations. The course structures for both the undergraduate and postgraduate programs are then presented. A proposal for implementing the new programs is finally outlined before conclusions are drawn.
